Quality of Products from Bureau of Mines Resource Recovery Systems and Suitability for Recycling.
Proc 5th Miner Waste Util Symp Chicago Illinois, 1976 Apr; :223-233
Products from the Bureau of Mines incinerator residue and raw refuse separation pilot plants have been examined extensively in Bureau laboratories to determine their chemical and physical properties and to define their potential highest value uses. Products have also been supplied to other laboratories and industrial firms for evaluation, and in almost all cases have been found acceptable for use in many of their operations. Quality of some of the products compares favorably with that of similar secondary raw materials, for which there has historically been heavy demand, and in many instances, the refuse-derived products were found to be of equivalent or even superior quality. The current climate in the market place for these materials is highly promising.
